Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Wordy Wednesday...

We've been having a heatwave and yesterday, the temperature reached 104 degrees in our neck of the woods/valley. Hothothot. Thoughtful Sierra Rose invited us to visit her hu-grandma and doggeh-aunt, Dixie, who have a POOL! COOL!




Heeeeere's Dixie, taking a giant leap...

Takin' in the action!





My swankiest dive -

And thanks to Sierra Rose and her Ma and Hu-Grandma for inviting us over to cool off! We had such a great time!

Bet that pool time was fun AND refreshing. Mom couldn't believe it when she saw on her phone that it was 110 in Glendora on Sunday and Monday - that's where our human brother lives. He told us it was just totally unbearable and was enough to make him want to move to Kansas:) That put a smile on all of our faces.

Stay cool.
